Abstract

Direct access storage device (DASD) folder processing is minimized for specific office applications by identifying each field within the folder as a field which is actually written to DASD or as a field which is maintained in a memory cache. A most efficient environment is achieved when a minimum amount of document description detail information is written to the DASD folder, and the rest of the detail information is cached in memory.
